It has been my youngest daughter's School Prom, and the week has been taken up with preparations for that...nails, hair, etc! Here she is with her friends at the side of their limo:
She had a lovely time, asking if she could have another Prom when she got home!!!
As for stitching, I've managed to complete my weekly goals:
Pisces cat is my completed Astrocat this week. I'm moving on to Aries cat next week.
Mermaid of the Pearls has had at least 5 hours spent on her this week. A section of the tail has been completed - lots of Kreinik braid in this!
HAED's Scarlet Witch has had about 5 hours spent on her - the last couple of days have been chaotic, so stitched on her when I could...
I've also been inspired to crochet after reading Lucy's blog. I used to do a bit of crochet in my youth, but it went on the back burner when I started cross-stitching. I pulled out some balls of Sirdar Denim Tweed DK wool out of my craft cupboard (from when I used to knit sweaters for the kids) and started some granny squares:
I was practising different colours for different rounds, and I have no idea what I'll actually make with them, but I'm going to do some more, and see where it gets me!
So...Next week's goals are going to be:
- At least 5 hours on Scarlet Witch
- At least 5 hours on Mermaid of the Pearls
- Stitch one Astrocat
- Crochet at least 5 granny squares
Have a good week :¬)
